LAS CRCUES, N.M. (AP) - Dona Ana County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the fatal stabbing of a 20-year-old man.

Authorities say deputies were called around 2 a.m. Saturday to the East Mesa area of Las Cruces.

They found the victim and he was airlifted to an El Paso area hospital, where he died during surgery.

The victim’s identity will be released pending notification of next of kin.

No arrests have been made.

Deputies had responded to the home where the stabbing took place earlier in the day, following reports from neighbors of a loud party.

This marks the second homicide in the county so far this year.
